Annie asks:

What is the minimum required information needed to accept a NOIM, and can you accept a NOIM without yet seeing proof of identity and date and place of birth?

You sure can! The minimum requirement is that the form is filled in, signed, and appropriately witnessed.
We don’t even need to see identity documents outside the month’s notice period. As long as we see them before the marriage goes ahead, we’re good to go 🙂
